In the windy, windy weather.....

The sun was shining and the wind blowing down at Evandale Lake for our 'Getting Crafty with the Kids' Daytime Meet-up.

The kids made use of the huge range of crafty materials as well as those found in the park and at the lake to create collages, masks, pine cone people, magnets and other treasures.  There was lots of time for fun in the playground, scooter riding, swimming, hermit crab hunting and eating cupcakes.

This was a popular event and we'll be sure to run some more in the summer holidays.

The next meet-up is Thursday 13th October from 6:30pm at the Southport Guide Hut.  Hope to see you there!

We were spoilt with sweet treats again this month at Crafty Coasters.  There was chocolate fondue, marshmallows, strawberries, banana bread and caramel sauce.  Oh, and craft too - embroidery, knitting, crochet, pom poms and yo-yos.

We are planning a special 'Getting Crafty with the Kids' school holiday meet-up for later this month.  Stay tuned for details.
